Chloride Mines Trail - Painted Rocks

Recommended Posts

For Black Friday @Number7 and I ran the Chloride Mines trail near Chloride, AZ. This is the trail where the Painted rocks are located. We ran it west to east, the opposite of directions shown in Wells trail guide. 

 

It is a very scenic trail, with eastern and western views from the Cerbat Mountains. We could see all the way to Valle Vista from one vantage point. 

 

There are 2 campgrounds along the way, but neither of those will accommodate a very large group. They were kind of funky, you had to carry your stuff a long way to the table and fire ring. The trail itself is easy with a couple mildly moderate spots. It took us 2.5 hours including a quick (it was freezing!) lunch stop.

Did that trail a few years ago w/ John Pa and Jim G.  We stayed at Windy point campground. We had it to ourselves except for one other camper.  Great views but the flies were bad and there were Rattlers in the campground!
